Microbiome recovery after antibiotics is improved by probiotic strains

August 2, 2022

Our CEO and bioinformaticians have published a paper in Gut Microbes together with colleagues in Danone and APC Microbiome Ireland. The randomized, double-blinded, controlled clinical trial shows how the microbiome, perturbed by H. pylory eradication therapy, recovers faster after consuming a multi-strain fermented milk product (L. paracasei CNCM I-1518, L. paracasei CNCM I-3689, L. rhamnosus CNCM I-3690 + 4 yogurt strains). These findings will be important when developing microbiome-protective probiotics in the future.
